Jardín Botánico

Gardens in Medellín

One of Medellín's nicest green spaces, the botanic gardens cover 14 hectares, showcase 600 species of trees and plants, and include a lake, a herbarium and a butterfly enclosure. Events often take place beneath the Orquideorama – an organically expanding meshwork of wooden flowers.

Behind the park, the Esquina de las Mujeres pays tribute to notable women from the area from the colonial era onwards.
